While we're still a year away from a new Arcade Fire album, the Montreal rock band has been busy this summer touring the festival circuit. On July 23, the band headlined the WayHome festival in Oro-Medonte, Ont. Below is a video of Arcade Fire's live cover of Bruce Springsteen's 1984 hit, "Born in the U.S.A.," which segues into the band's Neon Bible single "Keep the Car Running."
In 2009, Arcade Fire covered the same song at the Obama Staff Ball concert for Democratic employees who campaigned for Barack Obama's re-election. It's unclear whether or not the band's performance of this song is tied to the current American election, but it's nice to see Arcade Fire return to this great cover once again.
